While in and of itself plumbing is not a glorious activity, when used in the Lord’s service it becomes a glorious detail to the TOVP project and an essential and important element in its all-around long-term preservation.
Piping work on the temple started last June, 2014 under the guidance of Gammon Construction. Recently, plumbing work started on the domes. This is to insure that, due to the impending approach of the rainy season, all excess water can be removed to prevent any damage to the temple structure. Using HPDE (High Density Polyethylene), a material with a high density-to-strength ration, this will be accomplished in a short time. On the temple floor workers are also closing/sealing piping within layers of brick.
This important foundational work, as well as all the work on the temple structure, is being done with longevity in mind so the TOVP lasts for thousands of years with as little major maintenance as possible.
The piping work started last year June for the temple, last month it begun on the 3 domes. The Gammon is doing all the installation. Polyethylene (PE) is the material used for the pipes, with a high strength-to-density ratio HDPE = High Density Polyethylene also on the temple floor, the workers are closing/sealing the pipes with brick work. The work is done so that all the excess water can be removed without damaging the temple structure, now that the concreting work started on the domes and rainy season is approaching , this work is very important to prevent water damage at any level.
